Nintendo Switch won’t have a Virtual Console at launch 

Nintendo today confirmed that the Switch will not launch with an eShop onboard. However there is a day one system update that will add the function to the system.

There is a major caveat though – on launch, only Nintendo Switch games will be purchasable on the eShop, and there will be no Virtual Console at all!

Older consoles will be added in time through regular updates.

Nintendo released a statement saying they will “share more information in the future”. 

I remind you all that there is an eShop direct scheduled for Tuesday 28th at 17:30 (GMT) which will focus on the 60 indie games for the system.

Quite what this means for gamers I do not know – but it’s a strange move.
